Star Fruit

This used to be one of my favorite ever since I ate for the first time in Goa. I even bought a plant and planted, but unfortunately the plant died after bearing a fruit. Shilpa, my colleague gave me this fruit yesterday.

Few pictures from my visit to Jamkhandi

June 2nd week was spent in Jamkhandi. It was not a vacation;I had to work from home. During that week, I was lucky to have been a part of two important occasions. The first one was Prachi's birthday and second one - I was able to spend time with my cousins who had come down for a vacation. Here are some pictures,


From left to right, Prachi, Nandini and Mehul. This picture was taken in the morning before they left to Dharwad.
This was a close up picture of Prachi, which I liked. She didn't notice me taking her picture and may be that's of one reason its come out good. Prachi has a lot of resemblance to my grandmother.

On Prachi's birthday.



These stones in our garden which have carvings are believed to be very old and have a great signifance. Wild figs


White and Red Gulganji( in Kannada language). I don't know if these seeds are used for any purpose. But I truly beleive its a great nature's creation.

Cactus plant near the palace.

This was taken from the vegetable market. The spices arranged by the vendor was very attractive.






There are a variety of birds near my place and I was lucky to have shot this Cuckoo singing, without any other background disturbances.
